The 7 Best White Elephant Gifts for Under $30

The main purpose of White Elephant is to give something universal, given that the nature of the game is such that you don’t know who the recipient of the gift will be. And personally, when it comes to this kind of organized gift exchange, the spirit of giving rarely gets me beyond 20 or 30 smacks. At the same time, I don’t want to walk up to the table with something lazy or unwanted. So, how do you find a popular gift that, while not boring, is also not expensive?

I’ve rounded up the best white elephant gift ideas under $30 (assuming you’re willing to get a little creative). Even if the end recipient isn’t thrilled with their reward, every idea here is worthy enough to be re-gifted. And isn’t the ability to re-gift itself a gift?
